Well in order to answer you have to give us some info. What size bottle? Nitrous goes around here for about $3-$4 a pound. I would reccomend that you allways go with the biggest bottle you can. Much more efficient.sunrise said:Hi All,
I am all new to the N20 and was wondering for a small size bottle how many "shots" of N20 can do if you set it to a 100 shot and how much do the refills cost?
Thanks in advance for your responses.

Thanks for your response it was very helpful.WA 2 FST said:Sunrise,
One issue to consider is nitrous pressure. You have to maintain adequate pressure in order to get a true 100hp out of a "100hp shot" (meaning you have the 100hp jets in the nozzles at the manifold). If you tune it and you get 100rwhp at 900psi of bottle pressure, then you must maintain that pressure. Higher pressure can yield higher power numbers, but you could also go lean. Lower pressure will yield lower numbers.
The reason I bring this up is b/c once the bottle gets down to ~3lbs left in it, you will have a very hard time maintaining proper bottle pressure...even with a bottle heater. It may be fine at the beginning of a run, but by the end in higher gears, the pressure will certainly have dropped.
So if you have a 10lb bottle, figure you need to refill it once you use 7lbs.
I could easily get 6-7 full 1/4 mile passes out of a 10lb bottle with no problems with a 125hp shot. Sometimes 8-9 passes. There would still be a little nitrous left in the bottle, but it would be useless.
When I was running nitrous in my Vette, I had two 10lb bottles mounted in the slanted center section of the trunk. This worked very well. When one got low, I just opened up the other.
